What Moving Taught Me About Chronic Illness

If you've seen my Twitter (@Knotmagick) in the last week, you've probably seen how fantastically bad our recent move went.

I don't want to get into all the ways… Continue reading What Moving Taught Me About Chronic Illness

At the time, I had grand ambitions of one day curating and restoring a collection of late 19th and early 20th century typewriters, but quickly realized that neither my… Continue reading Inspiration Shots: Magic in the Headlines
